Thursday, July 6th IMU & CiTR 101.9FM present Hinterland, Bella, and Carbon Dating Service.BACKSTAGE LOUNGE, 1585 Johnston Street, Granville Island . 9pm / $10

HINTERLAND has been carving their own niche in the musical landscape with heavenly vocals and cascading walls of star-gazing guitar rock. Be sure to catch the band as they play songs from their new CD release, "The Picture Plane", produced by Caleb Stull (Parlour Steps). Building on the evocative sound they established on their widely acclaimed atmospheric debut "Under the Waterline", the heavy bits are punchier, the hooks are sharper, and the ambient passages are dreamier.

BELLA - Boasting classic boy/girl harmonies combined with insatiable hooks and sing-along songwriting, Bella's wonderful brand of melody-driven indie power pop with touches of atmospheric introspection, will leave you humming their anthemic choruses for days.

CARBON DATING SERVICE are a 9-piece pop orchestra, that use harp, viola, 3-piece brass section, synths, dobro, guitars drums and whetever else they can lay our hands on. Their unforgettable live show showcases music of a rare breed of polyphonic decadence. Having recently played with such bands as Novillero, Sylvie, A Northern Chorus, Young & Sexy, Immaculate Machine, The Winks & Mahogany Frog, Carbon Dating Service are an indie force to be reckoned with.
